Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marlon Brown has been a revelation as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia, but he’s also missed two games this season as a rookie and has had some issues with injuries this season. Brown missed yesterday’s game with a knee injury after being a late addition to the Ravens injury report. The Ravens suddenly listed Brown as questionable on Friday, which is never a good sign. Despite being a game-time decision, the Ravens held Brown out of Sunday’s overtime loss to the Chicago Bears, and it hasn’t been smooth sailing for Brown due to injuries.
But he’s been productive this season and has been incredibly impressive for a UDFA. It’s always great watching guys like Brown play well out of nowhere, and he’s averaged a solid 38.4 yards per game this season for the Ravens offense. His numbers aren’t close to being great or anything, but he’s done much more than what the Ravens could have expected from him.
According to the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson, Marlon Brown stated that he’s good-to-go for next week’s game against the New York Jets, who are due for a win per their win-loss rotation (yes, I’m being sarcastic), “I’ll be fine this week. It’s just bruised. I’ll be good.”
Even though he missed yesterday’s game, there is no indication that Brown will miss this week’s game, and you can pretty much lock him up for this week, barring a new injury or unforeseen setback. Brown sounds confident he’ll play, he called the knee a bruise, and he could have a big game against a Jets secondary that is known for allowing too much cushion (or simply getting burned). I mean, just look at what they did yesterday against the Buffalo Bills.
